You seem very well versed in the Massey family history.
I wonder if I might ask you for help with some more information about them.
I have a link to the Massey family through the LEIGH family of Outrington
Alice Massey of Massey Green Thelwall married to John LEIGH born 1580 and of
Lymm son of Peter LEIGH and Margaret nee WYLME.
I wonder if you have ever come across any information about the Mansion
house called Massey Green at Thelwall, which later comes into the DRINKWATER
family through marriage.
I did manage to find a map with it on, but have never been able to find any
history of the house or when it was built.
Also earlier in my family tree in 1422 a marriage of Elizabeth MASSEY
daughter of Hamon Massey to John LEYCESTER of Nether Tabley.
I am afraid that I have not delved into the MASSEY family at all apart from
knowing the story of Hamon Massey as Companion of William the Conqueror.
